That's the way I usually play it. Ain't it the way it works though? Record a movie off of TCM and your recording will look better than a copy on vhs bought in a store. But there's that damn watermark!

The watermarks or logos can be covered up using AviSynth and VirtualDub.

I would think so because if the logo is obscured then the trademark holder can't claim infringement on something that isn't there. Just my opinion of course.

Most probable. We in Arizona call it a "bug" but water mark is good too.
